This product is exactly as advertised. the quick boil feature is awesome. The temperature control is much more flexible than the one on my prior cooktop.

Purchased this to replace Kitchenaid glass cooktop purchased in 1992.The glass cooktop is impossible to clean thoroughly. Cooked on oil/grease takes maximum effort to remove using cooktop cleaner.In my opinion, you should go back to the glass supplier/glass formulation you used in 1992.If I weren't selling my house in a year, I would send this back to you and buy another brand. That is how disappointed I am in this product.

30" Electric Cooktop
from Gretna NE
Comments about KitchenAid 30" Black 5-Element Electric Cooktop:
I had my cookstove for only a couple of weeks when I noticed a big scratch on the top. I did not realize that the cooktop would scratch. No one ever top us that you almost need special pans to help avoid scratches. I had a ceramic cooktop for 20 years and not once did I have a scratch and so I figured this would be the same. After numerous calls to different people affiliated with Nebraska Furniture Mart (where it was purchased) and to Kitchen-Aid I've found out that I get to live with this scratch until I purchase a new cooktop.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Love using this cooktop, but EVERY single time you use it be ready to clean it. Whether you are boiling water, or just simmering something, it will be dirty. Everyone spot, spill or splatter shows big time. You have to clean it after every single use and it is such a pain! I'm not an OCD clean freak, but this cooktop stays dirty in my house. Every single time we cook...it's a mess.

I am forced to use electric in my house and never been that happy with my cooktops until now. This is so superior to anything else I have used. The control you have over the heat is superb and the various special features excellent to have. I had looked at induction but did not want to have to replace my favorite pans.This solves the problem and some. Easy to work with and I can finally control the heat.Look no further than this fabulous cooktop if you need electric. Looks great too!

I bought end of august and in a months time 2 burners turned cloudy and no one will help me.will never buy another kitchenaid if this is how you treat your customers.
Most slimline cooktop ever!

It heats up extremely fast and is a dream to clean up after cooking. Love the "lean & sleek" look on our countertop. Can't believe it's a cooktop that also allows me to have more countertop space! Great design guys.

This is my 2nd KitchenAid Cooktop so I had great expectations. Unfortunately, this model is hard to keep clean. For one example, following directions, I immediately wiped up the oil spatter after a piece of cauliflower skipped out of the pan containing the stir fry I was in the process of preparing. Bits of the dish cloth (that I had successfully been using for a number of years) stuck to the element and it took many concerted efforts to remove. Learning from that experience, I subsequently waited until the element cooled before wiping the cooktop. Unfortunately, that meant discolored circles and, again, took many attempts to remove. My last KitchenAid model still looked like new even after 10 years.Another issue is the temperature of the elements; the displayed number and the heat emanating are not in sync. '7' is not the same temperature as I have previously experienced. Yesterday I cooked eggs and it took a long while for the water to reach a boil.The bottom line is that I did not get the quality I was expecting or that I paid for

I love it
By Patti S.
I bought this because I wanted the smooth cooktop for easy cleaning, with no knobs to clean around. It is a breeze to keep clean! I use a cooktop cleaner and a razor to scrape off residue. It is just as gleaming as the day it was installed! Even after frying on it, the grease residue comes right off! I am also happy that I can still use my cast iron cookware on it! I had heard that you could not use cast iron on a smooth top cooktop, but that is not true! I have 3 skillets that are cast iron and they all work very well on this cooktop and do not scratch!! The cooktop works wonderfully! The power burners work great when you need heat fast. The only small thing that I wish was different is that the burner markings are difficult to see on the surface so sometimes my pan is not on the center of the burner because I can't see the markings well. Overall, I could not be happier with this and am so glad I got it!
